Meizu has begun the rollout of the Flyme 5.0 update for the Meizu MX5.
The firmware is available as an OTA download, but you will need about 940MB for download and a little bit more for unpacking and installation. Currently the Meizu servers are overloaded and the download process is very slow.
The new Flyme 5.0 is coming out of the box with the recently announced Meizu Pro 5, but the MX5 is the first device to get it via an update. The 5.0 version brings flatter UI with refined icons and animations, better battery life and overall stability and performance improvements.
If you own a Meizu MX5 the update should become available to you soon.
